Joa Antoun – Tattoo Artist from Lebanon
Joa is a young tattoo artist from Lebanon. Joa started tattooing 8 years ago,
while working on a graphic design degree.
She continued tattooing during her time at university because she says:
“I wanted to put something on someone’s body that they could carry for the rest of their lives. I could affect people in such a personal and interesting way by giving them a
tattoo that was meaningful both to them and to me.”
After the graduation she traveled to Instanbul to be a tattoo apprentice under a couple of professional tattoo artists.
She has now been to Instanbul a few times tattooing, as well as traveling to
other countries around the world, either for guestwork or conventions.
Joa has her own “base” at her own tattoo shop located in Beirut and she is well
known for her tattoos and attention for details.
She’s been Voted #2 as one of the “Best Places You Can Get A Tattoo In Lebanon”
by beirut.com (Sept 2017)
Joa also offers free Breast cancer reconstruction tattoos
After a personal and extremely emotional experience with a breast cancer survivor,
she began offering free tattoos as either a realistic nipple tattoo or a design
that would conceal the scar.
All of this is offered for free in the goal to refresh the woman’s faith in herself again.
Joa says: “Art has always been an integral part of my life, a passion that permeates everything that I do.
As a tattoo artist, I get to bring that love of art to life and share it with so many people.
This is why Joa Antoun Tattoos stand out.”
